andrea haenggi + bladderwrack

Calling on urban plants as her guides, teachers, mentors and performers,
andrea haenggi (she/they) has been developing a co-creative, artistic relationship with urban plants (aka weeds) since 2015, taking the form of dance pieces, “garden” installations, workshops, gatherings, lectures, and the co-founding of the art collective Environmental Performance Agency (EPA), whose goal is to shift thinking around the terms environment, performance, and agency. As a Swiss-born interdisciplinary artist, dancer, somatic educator and “activist of care” living on Lenapehoking/Brooklyn, she is in search of a new kind of rhizome practice theater, Ethnochoreobotanography, which simultaneously explores issues regarding decolonization, feminism, power, labor, care and the dissolution of human(-)nature dichotomy. She holds an MFA in Creative Practice from Transart Institute/Plymouth University UK, is a Swiss Canton Solothurn Dance Prize recipient and is on the faculty at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies. weedychoreography.com, environmentalperformanceagency.com
